La Tomatina Festival

La Tomatina is World’s biggest food fight festival held in Bunol near Valencia, Spain. The event has become one of the highlights on Spain’s summer festival which is held every year on the last Wednesday in August. It is the 11-day festival. It just started as good, messy fun. It is believed that in 1944 this began as a simple tomato fight between groups of friends in the town’s main square – the Plaza del Pueblo. The festival is in honor of the town’s patron saints, Luis Bertran and the Mare de Deu dels Desemparats. Nearly 20,000 to 40,000 tomato enthusiasts arrive in this huge tomato fight.
